Five Arrests Made in Connection to Shooting at New Jersey High School Football Game That Injured Three

Five people have been arrested in connection to a shooting at a New Jersey high school football game Friday night that left three people wounded.

Players and spectators ran for cover in a chaotic scene as a gunman opened fire around 8:30 p.m. Friday during the third quarter of a Pleasantville Greyhounds football game against the Camden Panthers in Pleasantville, Pleasantville Police Chief Sean Riggins said.

A 10-year-old child was injured in the shooting and is hospitalized in critical condition, and a 15-year-old boy suffered a graze wound and was treated and released, Atlantic County Prosecutor Damon G. Tyner said.

A 27-year-old man was also shot and is in stable condition but will require surgery, according to the prosecutor’s statement.

Police have arrested five people, including 31-year-old Alvin Wyatt, who faces charges of attempted murder, unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.

Michael Mack, 27; Tyrell Dorn, 28; Shahid Dixon, 27; and Vance Golden, 26- were also arrested and face charges of unlawful possession of a weapon and certain persons not to possess a weapon. Dixon is also charged with eluding.

Eyewitnesses described a panicked scene as some children were separated from their parents, and other parents held babies and young children tight to keep them from being run over by fleeing spectators.
